These curtain poles are suitable for all curtain heading types.

You will need rings if you opt for a pencil pleat, pinch pleat or other taped curtain heading style.

Unfortunately we are unable to take the rings out of the chrome and matt black pole kits.  You can however remove the rings should you opt for eyelet, tab top, tie or channel style curtains.

Eyelet curtain recommendations: 40mm eyelets are ideal for 28mm poles and can be specified when ordering made to measure eyelet curtains.

Readymade eyelet curtains typically come with 40mm eyelets so go well with a 28mm pole.

Measuring Guide for a Curtain Pole:

Decide where the pole is to be positioned.  This is usually above the window with the pole extending either side beyond the window.

Step 1: Measure the width of your window.

how to measure for a curtain pole

Step 2: The chart below provides guidance for making an allowance either side of your window for your curtain stack (shown as ‘B’ on the diagram above).  This is particularly important if you want the curtains to clear the glazing when open.  Please note the curtain heading, fabric thickness and lining specification will affect the width of the stack back.  How much you would like the curtains to clear the window is down to personal preference.  The chart below is however a good guide.

Step 3: Add the width of your window onto the B measurement (x2 for a pair of curtains) to give you a finished pole length (A).

Measuring Guide for a Curtain Pole and Curtain Track
Please note this is just a guide so we recommend choosing the pole length available within your preferred curtain pole range that best suits your requirements.  All poles can be cut to size with a junior hacksaw.  We offer a cut to size service on some curtain pole ranges.
Please read our measuring guide blog post for further information.
